A lot of cloud backups allow versioning of files which allows you to go back to any date /time so you don't need to keep multiple copies.

When you keep ''3 generations'' it is of course computer speak for ''3 files'' not generations as in family/people lines.
Have to remember some are not totally computer literate.
Hi Sally & Victor,
Project backups don't have to go to the hard drive do they? I send my back-ups to a USB stick by default. I keep 3 generations, so you can tell how old I am, as that is how I was taught on main-frames!!
When you back up a project folder it is saved on your hard drive. The more timesyou back this up they are all saved and this fills ylour hard drive so I would delete the earlier back ups. I normally just keep one previopis back up

Thank you Mike, I must say your explanation really surprised me! A couple more questions. When the Project is backed up will I get another copy of the media folder? If so it's going to quickly fill up my hard drive. If I imported my tree into
another program and then used that to make the Gedcom file would that help? I would really like to be able to see all the links to an image in one place.
Like Heather I was thinking of changing from a citation lumper into a citation splitter but I'm beginning to wonder if it's just going to be too much work on top of trying to sort out the media problem and whether I should choose another program altogether.
I'll certainly report to support, thanks for the link.
Thanks again for your help,
